October Projects - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

It's Karyn here and today I have 3 projects to share with you - A scrapbook page, 2 cards and 2 project life pages. All made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard
The Scrapbook page and cards are from a class I recently taught at Seriously Scrapbooking in Adelaide.

My background was created using some watercolour pan paints painted on using a "Painting with plastic" technique. When this was dry I added some stencilling with silver paint tinted texture paste.
I painted all of my chipboard with the same pan paints - I love the mat finish it gives.
I've also added paint splats with watery silver paint.
I've matted some papers under my photo (from the KaiserCraft Sea Breeze collection) and used strips on the top and bottom corners. I've also added some paper flower embellishments.
I also made 2 cards using similar techniques, colours and style as my scrapbook page. This first card is more femenine.
This next card is more masculine with the brown paints and some twine.

More MANLY action ......

Hello to you all.

I hope that you are all having an amazing week so far and you have been creating up a storm with some yummy Imaginarium Chipboard!  Did you know that you can get it HERE ...

Today I am sharing some more MASCULINE projects created by the creative team!

Amanda has created this AMAZING page of her little Mister A! (#lovethiskid)

I went for a really striking masculine look with a strong colour scheme and dramatic black background. To keep with the simplicity of the design (& to avoid 'over doing it' )my chipboards are coated in my favorite juicy ink pads. Versa Ink in Seafoam, Gold & Silver. Love it!

This month Leeann got to use this photo of her husband doing what he loves. Out cutting up logs, collecting wood for the family to keep us all toastie warm come winter. The title is a true testament to this guy! she used black embossing powder on the title and the bike. She also cut up a cluster of the tiny leaves and randomly placed them.

Susanne has made an incredible Layout this month...

My boy layout is based on a Wordle, kind of a puzzle with words as the background. I have used left over alphas to create a series or words that reflect boys, and adhered them to basic cardstock.
Then I have painted with gesso and sprayed with Lindys stamp gang sprays for colour. For the cogs I have spray painted black with a can of matt spray paint, then added mini art stones with dimensional magic and rubbed over with copper and green inka gold.  I have added smaller words, that have been spray painted matt black

Here the corner is embossed with Stampendous aged copper..perfect for this look.The black and white butterflies help soften the look and add a natural element to contrast with the cogs and metal.  I have cut several trinkets in half and layered above and below the photo..Add a few trinkets, the branches help soften the look of the layout

And lastly, Miriam has stepped out of her comfort zone to create a wonderful layout ...

LO is of a friend's little boy, he is so cute, love the red chair, wanted it to be the focal point, just added a little white chipboard and some burlap.

Thanks ladies for sharing your pages!
